Early VA gain predictive of visual response after dexamethasone treatment

Early visual acuity gain of 10 or more letters was predictive of a sustained response at 24 months after intravitreal dexamethasone treatment of macular edema in patients with retinal vein occlusion, according to a study.
The 24-month, retrospective, multinational study included 155 eyes with macular edema secondary to either central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO, 65 eyes) or branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO, 90 eyes). The eyes were treated with dexamethasone implant and followed over 24 months. Mean BCVA for all eyes at baseline was 0.52 logMAR and mean CST was (Read more...)
